Matthew - saz
Stef - mandola, bagpipes
Peni - bagpipes
Jez - medaevil stick drum
Henry - medaevil stick drum
Stef, Peni, Jez and Henry comprise The Mordekkers (this isn't Henry from Children of the Drone). They were playing a couple of gigs at the festival and invited me along to record them. During the daytime on Saturday and Sunday we jammed a bit around the festival site, some of which got recorded.
1-3 are traditional Welsh pipe tunes.
4 and 6 are just me noodling on the saz.
5 involves Stef, but he was a bit too far from the microphone, so isn't very audible.
Track 6 ends with me asking "What are Seven League Boots anyway?", Seven League Boots being the title of their demo CD, which Peni and Stef had been discussing in the background. They can then be heard explaining that they're boots which allow the wearer to walk seven leagues with each step, appearing in "some fairy tale" (Wikipedia explains in a bit more detail).
1-3 recorded 06/08/05, 4-6 recorded 07/08/05.
